WOW Blackhand: Transferring money from Horde to Alliance character

I would like to transfer some money from my horde character to my alliance character so that he can buy his mount. My thought is to have my alliance character sell a small item at an outrageous buyout at the mixed Auction House and have my Horde character buy it. Is there an easier way to do this? Would my characters (both of which are level 40) need higher level escorts to get them to the mixed auction house (by the way, where is it?).

Thanks.

P.S. I did a search, but feel free to *cough* in my face if this has been covered before....

Its in Gadzetzan or how ever it is spelled. This is possible, I have heard of people doing it in the past.

This is known as the Gadgetzan Shuffle. You can't bid on your own auctions though, so you won't be able to sell things between Horde/Alliance on your own account. Have your Alliance character put up a small item for an outrageous opening bid and buyout. Then give enough money to buy it to someone you trust on the Horde side, and have them buy the item. That last step is the tricky one, because you never really know what someone will do when you hand them 100g on a promise.

Yep, I did this all the time with a couple of other players when I was bouncing back and forth between Horde and Alliance. Just have an item like level 1 food or something, and have someone put it up on Gadgetzan auction house in Tanaris for like 10g, 20g, however much you want to transfer. Then go buy it, they get the cash and just mail it to your character on that faction.

If you need someone to facilitate on the Alliance side, I'll do it, just let me know when and I'll put a cheapie up, let you know the name and you can buy it and I'll transfer the cash over. I'm bound in gadget anyway and you can trust me.

EDIT: Oh yeah, at level 40 should be no problem getting there. It's south of Shimmering Flats, on the south wall of the salt flats will be a path, take the path south and it comes out right near Gadgetzan.

Thanks Leaping! I may ask you to do that when next I find you in game. I appreciate the assistance!!!!

Edgar, I already have both of my characters in the AH ready to do this very thing. I could not find anyone to help me when I wanted/needed to do it and so they're both still sitting there... Perhaps we can help each other.

That sounds good. I am running my Horde character there tonight. Bando. If I have time, I will run my Alliance character (Bagman) there tonight as well.

Let me know if you plan to be on tomorrow night and we can work out the details.

Edit: Bagman and Bando are hanging out in Gadgetzan arnd ready.... Looking forward to receiving and providing assistance in these transfers.

Tomorrow night it is. Do you have Xfire or another IM client? I don't see anything listed in your profile. PM it them to me if you prefer to keep it private... or check out my profile and add me.

I have not yet joined the xfire revolution. I have AOL IM (edgarnewt) and will try to install xfire tonight (if I am successful, I will post that as well). I should be on by 9 pm PST (let me know if that is too late for you).

Looking forward to it.

Edit: xfire tag: edgarnewt. I am going to log in to WOW on the alliance side as Bagman and will be hanging out while I eat dinner.
